FINE LINES AND HEAVY STROKES
“Just be open to speaking to a lot of people. Be the person who reaches out and speaks to people. Not even just about NFTs but just to see how they are doing.”
A first-generation Barbadian American, Bhare first channeled his creativity into a different sphere: culinary school. When a tug-of-war ensued between his current career path and his true passion, his adulation for art was crowned the convincing winner.
He utilizes multiple mediums, including acrylics and oils on canvas, with profound results. His abstract, poignant art pieces often depict uncomplicated everyday scenes with just a hint of the fantastical.
Bhare credits Twitter for his decision to enter the NFT space in August 2021. He elaborates: “I got into it because I was in an art group chat and had a bunch of friends who started to dabble in NFTs, but I wanted to understand a little about it first before I just dive in head-first.”
It was the thrill of receiving the first offer on his genesis piece, however, that provided him with the drive to firmly establish himself as a web3 artist.
Thinking of each piece of art as a conversation with himself, Bhare rates his Red Dead Redemption 2-inspired piece ‘Big Top Outlaws’ as his ultimate favorite – mainly because it is his most underrated piece and he is a vehement supporter of the underdog. He explains: “I was just very, very proud of the piece. It was a very good reflection of what I wanted to be as an artist at that moment.”
What advice does Bhare have for aspiring NFT artists? He says: “Just be open to speaking to a lot of people. Be the person who reaches out and speaks to people. Not even just about NFTs but just to see how they are doing.
Bhare has big plans for the future: exhibiting in the Museum of Modern Art, working with luxury fashion lines, and continuing to make a name for himself in Web3, creating thought-provoking pieces of digital art.
